I’m binging Dawson’s Creek while doing Laundry this morning and a character just dropped the “prayer changes me not God line”, so of course the internet must receive my thoughts on this.

First things first, Dawson‘s Creek is a legitimately fun show. Yes it’s a teen soap opera, and yes…


(This is an excerpted chapter from a devotional book project called “Holy Forsaken” that I am still very much in the middle of)

To me the most amazing thing about Job’s story is how it ends. Many people remember that he got everything back and then some. …


This was originally published on Conatus News, now Uncommon Ground.

I recently came across an older article critiquing the Trumpian Right’s “affirmative action” for conservatives. Much of that article was laudable, and I recommend reading it. But there ιs a fundamental blind spot in most of these left vs right…


There’s this old joke that Ph.D. actually stands for Partial Head Damage. If you’ve met enough people with doctorates this starts to seem fair. Dr. Kendi seems to be one of them. I dare you to go read his Twitter feed and try to convince yourself this is a functioning adult writing these things.

But a better use of your time would be to read something by Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, Glen Loury, John McWhorter, Shelby Steele, or Jason Riley. If you don’t know who those dudes are you need to.


RBG was a worthy adversary of the constitution and I will miss her presence. Not because I agreed with her on anything but because she was a person, with a lot of personality and in many ways a great Lincolnian American. As the Lincolnian age comes to an end, as…


I’m stealing these from Gary Chapman (the five love languages guy) and blogging about them for my own sake. I’m going through something right now, a struggle I always new was coming, and it’s a lot harder than I thought it would be. …


Some poor soul posted this on Medium

“I wrote earlier about trying to express my reasons to my dad in a calm and intellectual manner. I actually thought I had been calm and well-reasoned. I thought I might even be making progress.

Today I found out he put a Trump…


I love Cobra Kai. I love everything about it. And apparently like most of the world I only became a fan a few moments ago. Paying for YouTube seems ridiculous right?

Well maybe I should have been paying for YouTube because Cobra Kai has probably knocked Stranger Things out of…


This morning a good friend sent me an article from The Imaginative Conservative (easily one of the best “blogs”) that outlined Robert Nisbet’s ten conditions of revolution. The piece is excellent and very worth reading in its entirety.

I’m not going to comment on all of the conditions, or even…


The coronavirus crisis is a purely anti ideological moment. It doesn’t belong to the Anarcho-Capitalists or the Bernie Bros because it’s a genuine crisis based in something real, something that came from outside the political maelstrom. Yes the chinese communist party can and should be blamed for some of this…
